    I just fiddled with MGU-H mode.
    In Hotlap setting of MGU-K deployment after the battery is empty, the MGU-H delivers some energy for the hybrid system, but the amound differs quiet a bit between "battery" and "motor" modes.

    With empty battery and mode set to motor the electric power meter shows about 20-25% support, but with mode set to battery (with Hotlap mapping) it goes up to about the 70% like with a charged battery and can be used the complete way down long straight.

    I think this is a bug, because the harvested energy from MGU-H should be the same regardless of send to the motor or battery?!?

    Not sure.
    1st: The intensity needed to load battery and to power the MGU-K can be different.
    2nd: When you transform mechanical energy to electric energy and revert it back to mechanical, I think they are lot a losses.

    (just 2 ideas, I'm not a F1 expert)

    You're right, I was thinking similar things as a reason for it too, but factor 3 seems quite (/too) high.

    But by that logic it should be the other way round.

    MGU-H energy directly to the motor should be more efficient than the 3 times as powerful way of MGU-H to battery and from there to the motor.

    (MGU-H to motor is weaker than MGU-H to battery and electric power support)

    Let's wait last update (this night according the third post ?).

    OK. Just wanted to mention it in case it was missed until now.

    I think you're right. Good catch!

    The deployement you are seeing though is not coming from the MGU-H it is the normal hotlap one coming from ES. The bug is that the BATTERY mode continually prevents the battery from reaching full ZERO charge. It keeps it alive at 0.000something and the game is fooled into thinking it can deploy as usual.

    Great simulation, but it's all too hard for me!

    yes, or very close; so is hotlap preset +mgu-h motor. id misread aris' post & thought he'd said it was set to be 70% at full power, rather than with mgu-h set to battery.
  11. It's like flight simming :D

    Brilliant read Aris. Really nicely written. Could this info please be stickied?

    before this manual i just used all setting to charge and spam the Kers button like crazy:D
    thanks for the info Aris and Jon

    But in real life, don't the drivers shift at the end of the blue leds?

    I think it doesn't matter that much at which revs you shift exactly, as the car has a very broad range of revs where it delivers hell of a torque.
    At least if you have electric power left. If you run out of juice, you're doomed.

    I think the battery may be larger than 4MJ, but the lap limit is 4MJ.

    There is no limit on the battery capacity, except obviously weight and placement constraints. When we talk about 4MJ and 2MJ are all imposed energy back and forth management limits. Not battery capacity limits

    Yeah it would make sense to have more but it looks like they can't. See left side.
